“Best sailing day trip!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Matteo, the captain, and his crew were AMAZING! Very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. We sailed to a secluded beach and one of the crew went snorkeling with us so he could show us the best places to view great sea life. Then they served us a delicioso meal! Plenty of beverages were available during the entire trip, as well. Next, we sailed to a perfect spot to watch the BEAUTIFUL sunset, and on the way we got to experience many dolphins playing around us. We could not have asked for a better trip! Great for all ages!

“Go on a Sunset Cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Mario and the crew on the Manta Ray took great care of us. They took us out on their Catamaran to a great cove to Snorkel. We saw lots of fish, and they even caught some with their bare hands so we could see them up close. They then cooked us hamburgers on the grill, served us Punch, then took us back on a slow ride home to watch the sunset. Great thing to do and the value was excellent.

“The VERY best way to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Of all the snorkeling trips I have been on, in many different places, including Hawaii...this was the VERY best! Matteo and his crew were fantastic.
The snorkeling was good, especially near the rocks at Honeymoon Beach. But service on the boat is what really sets this trip apart from many others.
Do the afternoon trip, and you will see the most beautiful sunset!
I cannot say it any other way...do NOT miss this trip if you are in Costa Rica.....

“No worries!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

You will forget all your worries when you take a trip with Matteo & his crew on the Manta Ray. The service was wonderful. The crew were very friendly & helpful. They were very attentive to the children on board, allowing them to get a view from the captains seat & as well as always watching out for their safety. Spencer is in love with Diana!! The meal was delicious Diana, best guacamole!! The snorkel guide stayed close to the kids and pointed out the puffer fish to them. Matteo is very knowledgeable about the area & what we might see. never felt rushed. Good music. Awesome sunset photos to be had. You will like this tour.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

I have been on this boat about five times. I still haven't gotten tired of it. First of all the boat itself is very nice. There are nets at the front to see the water, and sometimes you can dolphins off the side of the boat. The crew is incredible. Kender, the snorkel guy, is amazing. He always goes out of his way to find cool stuff to see. He brings up seastars, blowfish, and even octopi! He also brings you drinks and food while on board. The captain, Mateo, is also great. He will always lend a helping hand where he can, and is also very friendly. He also cooks your food on board (hamburgers). There is another crew member, but it's not usually the same guy. The best thing about the crew is that you can talk to them as friends, not as people who you are paying. They are just so pleasant.
